Donation Information

Changes in student support over the last few years have seen increasing numbers of students losing entitlements, which has caused some students to drop-out of their study because of hardship issues. – a 2013 Massey University survey found a third of students have had to change their diet because of financial hardship.

To assist students suffering hardship OPSA manages short-term student support, including:

  • Food parcels
  • Hardship Grants
  • Transport Grants
  • Budget Advice

Your donation will help ensure students are not forced to go hungry or drop-out of their study because of a preventable hardship.


OPSA also welcomes donations for specific student support purposes or projects.
